re String Validation/ or something...

Hi there Bob,

To answer your questions:

1. I'm using MS SQL Server V8.0
2. Yeah there will be money, date/time data. All the DB will be
money/datetime.

Its pretty tricky. Using the code Ray gave me and a bot of my own I
was able to populate the DB to an extent. The extent being *one*
insert per loop. So I ended up filling one field in a row, moving to
the next row and filling another field etc.

I've written out what I think *may* work in pseudocode but I'm new to
asp and can't turn it into code proper.

something like

<code>

if readline includes "[" then
this is a *tablename*
so until next "["
all readlines are "fieldame = data"
-->smlArray = split(readline, =)
-->store all smlArrays into bigArray
-->so until loop finds another "["
-->bigarray should be bigarray(smlarr ay0, smallarray1,sml array2, etc)
then using bigarray construct insert as
insert into *tablename*(big array.smlarray1 (0), bigarray.smlarr ay1(0),
etc)
values (bigarray.smlar ray1(1), bigarray.smlarr ay1(1),etc)

</code>

Or maybe I'm completely wrong.
I don't know if said or if i merely implied but there a numerous
different tables. The file *will* hold data that will reflect the DBs
structure.

I'll post some more sample data in a differnt post, as this one seems
a tad long for usenet!

I appreciate any help you can give me.

Disregard my previous reply. I see what you're after.
1. What is the type and version of database you are using.
2. Your example data is all character (string) data. Will there be
numeric
or date/time data provided by these text files? Will the corresponding
table
fields be the same datatype (numeric or datetime)? Or are all the
fields
character fields?

Hi, I'm trying to figure out the most efficient method for taking the first character in a string (which will be a number), and use it as a variable to check to see if the other numbers in the string match that first number. I'm using this code for form validation of a telephone number. Previous records from the past few months show that when someone is just messing around on one of our forms (to waste our time), they type

Hello, I'm trying to perform a very simple validation of user input. I want to verify that the user entered a six-digit string consisting entirely of numbers. So anything from 000000 to 999999 is considered valid. The problem that I'm having is getting the validation to work on the entire string. In other words, 000000 is okay but 000000000000 is also returning as a match. Here's a quick code block...I have something along these lines.......

Hi, I have an XSD schema where I have attributes that are declared to contain non string values such as integers etc. Take for example, this declaration - <xs:attribute name="IsThisTrue" type="xs:boolean" /> Now, I want to write or modify an XML document using the DOM API (using C#) where this attribute will be given a boolean value.

We're running a site that has required field validation on the login page. It works fine on our development / test machines. However, when I upload this site to our live server i get this error. In IE, the validation works, but no form ever gets submited. It doesn't even process the click event of the button. In mozilla, it works 100% (this is weird because it's usually the oposite). Any thoughts?

string.IsNullOrEmpty is a very flexible function but watch out sometimes you really mean to test not just for 'empty' strings but also 'blank strings'. In other words, if you use string.IsNullOrEmpty on string containing just spaces it returns false. Which is a correct behaviour but not you actually meant/want in your program. Bugs can creep in without testing properly.
